The Junk@ Jalan Wayang,Kuching

This is my second week in Kuching. Of course, I miss all the yummy Ipoh food, esp the Liu Fun, Wanton Mee, Hor Fun, Dim Sum etc etc....but life's goes on in my new place.
Hubby brought me to this place located near the riverfront for dinner. The junk serves nice western food and comparatively prices are rather reasonable as the portion was really huge.

The place is indeed like its name, decorated with many antique stuffs, some warm lighting, and I quite like the ambiance.

Oh, the food, yet to explore all, but the two dishes we ordered didn't disappoint us. In fact, quite up to mark.
We love the chicken wings, stuffed boneless chicken wings, yummylicious

Pepperoni Pizza scores average, but not bad though!

The place should be really popular, as it was crowded, especially if you are planning to go on weekends, in big crowd, make sure you do a reservation.
We'll definitely go back for other yummy food on their menu.

Taipei Trip #3 - Jiu Fen

I love Jiu Fen.....a old township that has got beautiful scenery, lots of shopping can be done, lots of food to sample......what else can you ask for???
We hired a driver to bring 4 of us for the whole day Jiu Fen Trip. He is indeed a nice chap, he is not just a driver, he is a professional tour guide as well.

We started off early from our hotel in Taipei around 9am, he stopped us to buuy/pack some nice breakfast, then we headed to Jiu Fen. I saw this beautiful scenery on the way, and requested him to stop for photography session...lovely isn't it???

Ok, we headed up to Jiu Fen, stopped by this beautiful waterfall and the driver purposely dropped us to a strategic point to take some nice snap as well!

Out first stop was the Gold Ecological Park at Jinguashi. That was the gold mine occupied by Japanese during their invasion.

My cousin sis who has been to this place b4, recommended this Bian Dang/ lunch box to us. Yummy lunch box, pork chop rice sold at one cafe within the park. the box is given free, indeed a souvenier ya!

Ok, finally we reached Jiu Fen!!!

We first tried the distilled coffee - not bad though!!!

Then we dined at this small but super crowded stall to try some fish ball and noodles.

Everything were so delicious~~~~~~~~

Another highlights in Jiu Fen was this special ice-cream... I quite like it!
Wrapped in special wrap, with some peanuts and leave~~~very refreshing!

I also love the kuih and Yu Yuan dessert!!! All freshly made!!

Everyone enjoyed the makan, shopping and beautiful scenery at Jiu Fen!!!

Taipei Trip #2

Day 2, we took MRT from Taipei Main Station to XinBeiTou station in order to get to Yang Ming Shan and Beitou HotSpring. Then, later in the evening we went to Fisherman Wharf 淡水漁人碼頭 at Tan Shui and walking around TanShui Old Street.

Transportation in Taiwan is super convenient and people around can be super helpful if you are not sure how to go about with public transport.
It was a fulfilled day.
We started with Yang Ming Shan tour, taking mini bus to YMS main station, from there, change to another bus to different attractions stop at YMS. Lovely scenery and breathtaking view.

The Sulfur Spring

We dined at a small restaurant at BeiTou town, surprisingly the food was really impressive. The local noodles and some porky stuff...yummy. It is located behind the MRT station, few shops besides Watsons.Opposite MOS Burger

After some rest and wonder around, we check in to the town hotspring hotel to enjoy the sulfur hotspring at BeiTou.

Our 3rd stop of the day, Fisherman Wharf and Lover's Bridge. Besides taking some nice photos there, we also bought a lot of packed food there, some nice nuts and dried fruits etc.

We then took bus back to Tan Shui Old Street to buy 阿婆铁蛋 Taiwan Iron Egg and some other souvenirs and things.

After that, we had some local shopping at another new street opposite the MRT station and ate the local food....nice nice!!!

I love esp the fried meehoon and stuffed fish ball....very delicious!!!

Tiring day, but fulfilled....mission completed - good food, nice scenery, enjoyable shopping for food and other things!!!! I love Taiwan!!!

Taipei Trip #1

I was really impressed with the people in Taiwan. They are really really nice people, generally, people are helpful and sincere. We were there in mid of Oct, the weather was superb, not too hot and not too cold, lovely!!
We found that the 5 days 4 nights were totally not enough!!! And the food, simply delicious!

Our first stop: CKS Memorial Park

This this the national theatre...beautiful isn't it?

Then, we proceed to Taipei 101

Not to forget to try Ding Tai Fung Xiao Long Bao, originated from Taiwan.
There is a branch at Taipei 101 food court. Waiting time - 30mins, but worth it!

While waiting for our turn to taste the XLB, we ordered one set of Lu Rou Fan to share at the food court.

After that, we proceed to Wu Fen Pu for the famous Formosa Chang Lu Rou Fan. Wonder around Wu Fen Pu and then heading to Raohe Night Market for another round of food hunting and shopping!!!!
Formosa Chang

Yummy, we asked for extra topping/ sauce

Since many people highly recommended to try the famous pepper biscuit in Raohe, we queued up for about 20mins to wait for our order.

All we have to say is too much food, too little stomach.....nice experience wonder around for food at Raohe, and bit of shopping as well.
